The Freedom Files, Pt.1

Carl Moeller, the President/CEO of Open Doors, recently sent out an email with this picture, a list of items prohibited in the Maldives. Item #3 is items contrary to Islam, which could include any number of Christian symbols and writings and most anything else that would express a viewpoint other than the prophet's.

As Independence Day approaches, remember to be thankful that we live in a country where contrary materials are still permitted.

We are still free to be offensive to people of other religions, or people without religion, in what we say, write and display. We can still wave around bibles, tell people their political views are wrong, write books telling everyone that Jesus got married three times and say that we think some things are immoral.

While there are many who would take this freedom away from us and make sure that we don't say or do or display anything that offends them, they haven't done so yet!
